    Finland had an emergency meeting last night after the Germany loss, for the hell of it I'm going 5-2 USA but it could go either way.

    This game is literally impossible to predict. I do expect USA to play very solid game, but Finland in the other hand is bit more tricky, could go either way. If they play offence as well as against Canada, it'll be great game. If they play Denmark and Germany game, it's 9000-0.

    5-3 Finland is my final prediction though.

    Against Germany Finland played well only in the third period and won shots like 20-4. I believe we will see same kind of effort for 60 minutes today. But USA will be a tough one.

    There is so much at stake in this game. If Finland wins on regulation it wins the group and faces Swiss or Slovakia in the QF. Swiss have a really good team this year, they should definetely win over France. With all the respect to Swiss hockey community it would frankly be the best option for us to face in the QFs at this point.

    The US probably takes this one. Hope the boys prove me wrong though.

    Why is Pokka still in the 1st line? The guy shouldn't even be in the national team, that's how bad he is.

    Look likely the Finns take this one. Finns are mediocre vs bad team but mostly over perform vs good team.

    Olli Jokinen tip for the game: If Kane sleeps, don't wake him up. No poking, no slapping at shins.
